How to prepare your lobster
- Refer to our Seafood Care page for instructions on how to de-shell your lobster.
- Place the lobster in a baking dish.
- Using a brush, baste the lobster tail with room-temperature unsalted butter.
- Add 2 oz. of water and place in a 400 degree oven for approximately 6 to 7 minutes for a 4-5 oz tail. Adjust your time accordingly to your lobster tail weight, adding approximately one minute for every extra 2 oz. cooking to an internal temperature of 140 degrees.
How to assemble your dish
- Place finished tail on the plate and arrange with your favorite side.
Try this wine pairings
Try with a classic California Chardonnay like Cakebread or Rombauer. Big and rich enough to hang with the lobster and the hints of lemon and butter will accent the dish wonderfully. Go ahead and double down on opulence!
